Children’s Dental Services

It is never to early to initiate good dental habits. Kids should generally start seeing a dentist just after their first birthday. Teaching kids the importance of oral health will help them in their overall health. We provide the following services to help kids keep a healthy smile:

Fillings are direct restorations placed immediately into a prepared cavity in a single visit. They include dental amalgam, glass ionomers, resin ionomers and some resin composite fillings. The dentist prepares the tooth, places the filling and adjusts it during one appointment.

Pulpotomy for diseased or injured teeth may be retained through a root canal procedure. In this two-part procedure, the tooth’s pulp chamber and roots is cleaned and shaped and covered with a temporary crown. The second part of the procedure, the roots are filled and the tooth is restored with a crown or filling.

Sealants apply a resin coating onto a tooth to protect it from decay.

Extractions for removal of teeth for disease or orthodontics.




Oral Hygiene Instructions

Crowns cover an existing tooth and return it to its normal appearance. They are used for several purposes:
— Make your tooth stronger and/or improve its appearance
— Cover and support a tooth when there isn’t enough tooth left
— Protect a weak tooth
— Restore a broken tooth
— Cover teeth that are discolored or misshaped

We provide additional procedures and services not listed here.
